Instructions: How to Cook Sparta Chicken

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, paprika, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish, and pour the marinade over the chicken. Ensure the chicken is evenly coated with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or overnight for best results.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.
  4. Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-7 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have nice grill marks.
  5. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve the Sparta Chicken with fresh lemon wedges on the side.
